Suomalaisen pelistudion, Remedyn, Alan Wake osoittaa heräämisen merkkejä. Pelin virallisilla foorumeilla toimivat vastuuhenkilöt ovat saaneet studiolta mystisiä kirjoituksia itse Alan Wakelta. Teksteistä on julkaistu tähän mennessä kolme seuraavanlaisessa muodossa:
”The amount of pages keeps growing each night. There are also new edits on the old pages. They keep getting more aggressive. The story is rewriting itself. The protagonist is now my namesake, and his wife is called Alice. The most worrying aspect: the genre seems to be shifting. It´s turning into a horror story. I can no longer be certain whether the hero can succeed or even survive. Apart for jumbled fragments of bad dreams and an oppressive feeling, I can remember nothing of the process when I wake up. But this morning, a breakthrough! When I came to my senses, I could smell her perfume on my shirt. I am close. I know it. I must push on.
– Alan Wake”
”Rusty´s screams were still ringing in my ears. The tree stump the grove got its name from looked like a severed leg of a monsterous bird. I prayed that the gun would make a difference. Every time I moved the flashlight, I was afraid of the horrors it might reveal. Suddenly a ragged arrow gloved in the light. I followed it.
– Alan Wake”
”I became increasingly afraid to go to sleep.
I was convinced that I would wake up changed, darkness having seeped in through the cracks in the floor, crawled up to my bed, and made its way inside, through a nostril or an ear.
I barricaded the door of the cabin. I kept the lights on at all times. I taped a note on the door (I had forgotten so many things already):
´Don´t go out.´
